The 13th Summer School is a training initiative jointly developed by CHRA and EIUC.
The School will be held in the EIUC premises in the Monastero San Nicolò in Venice Lido from August 27th to September 5th, 2018. The 10-day programme is aimed at students and young professionals wishing to broaden their understanding on the connections between human rights, film, digital media and video advocacy, to share ideas and to foster participatory and critical thinking on urgent human rights issues, debate with experts and filmmakers from all over the world during the 75th Venice International Film Festival and learn how to use films as a tool for social and cultural change.
The Summer School offers an exciting programme of lectures, film screenings, discussions and working groups that combine human rights expertise, media studies and video advocacy strategies. The eight sessions develop issues relating to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights illustrated in Films, a History of Human Rights Cinema, Freedom of Expression and Censorship, the Role of the Media in Advancing Human Rights Causes, the Use of Video in Human Rights Documentation and Advocacy, Production and Distribution of Human Rights Films and Social Documentaries and Documentary Film Project Development. Each module is illustrated by film or documentary screenings.
As part of the programme participants are required to watch and analyse a selection of human rights related screenings at the 75th Venice International Film Festival. Whenever possible, filmmakers, jury members and critics from the cinema world are invited to participate to discussions with the summer school participants. Participants will be given a 7-day Cinema accreditation to the Film Festival giving access to a selection of festival screenings.
A certificate would be awarded to participants attending 90% of the summer school sessions and film screenings.
